Hyper Wars: The Mega Firestorm (WIP)

I've been working on this for quite a time and want to pollute these forums with it too.
Well then I present:


A 2 coloured vertical shooter inspired by Solarstriker, Truxton, raptor and all that other stuff i played over the years.
I've tried to keep it somewhat gameboyish.

The controls are fully configurable.
Gamepad input is supported. (Usage recomended)

right now it is ~40% complete.

press f1 during the game for any further information.


This game contains offensive language!
Play it at your own risk!

Download V0.3b:

Have fun.
Comments & (constructive) Criticism apreciated!

Hey, 9_6, didn't know this was yours!  I'm a fan of this game, just played the updated version a bit last night.  It was also one of my "August Notables" Smiley  I would have noticed if you slipped this one into the contest Wink but I'd still like to see another effort by you... understand your concerns re: distracting you from this.

Wow, you've really nailed the original gameboy style!  Plus, I love the humorous and self-aware dialog!

Good job!

It was really great! But i don't really get where the hitbox is. Can't you make that a little bit more clear?

Great humour  Smiley

Yeah this is great! I played through the whole thing. Good unlockables too.
I agree about the hitbox. It's good that it stays small even when you get the wings but sometimes it doesn't seem to totally track with the pod.

Thanks for the comments.

Well the hitbox is just a little bit smaller than the ship without any wings.
If it would be any bigger, some later levels with bullets filling the whole screen would be almost unbeatable.
But if that's all that bothers you, I'll just let the cockpit be the hitbox.
Would that be fine?

Nice gamboy look!!!

Amazing what you can do in monochrome.

As for the hitbox, I'd rather have it at the center of the ship as big as the cockpit.

Re: Hyper Wars: The Mega Firestorm (WIP)

I have played your game, and I think it very fun.

To me, the game does not need be more altered. It is ready for all players. I will put it in my "top ten indie indications"on the blog FILOSOFIA SHMUP ( www.filosofiashmup.blogspot.com ).

GGod luck with your next project.
